Officials respond to BL bomb threat
LISBON – Details were released by the county sheriff’s office, which responded Monday to Beaver Local High School after a bomb threat was made in the afternoon.
Students were evacuated after Superintendent Kent Polen reported someone found a handwritten note, in pencil, on a partition in a boys restroom. The note reportedly stated, “Look for wires in the hall. This (expletive) is going to blow at 1:30.”
Both deputies and the West Point firefighters responded. Students were evacuated to the visitors bleachers in the football stadium. First responders searched the building, but nothing suspicious was located.
They reportedly cleared the building by 1:25 p.m. and waited until 1:45 p.m. before returning when nothing happened.
The threat was similar to the one in late March of this year, where a student found a message written on a stall in a boys bathroom which read, “Bomb 1:00.” Similarly, the students were moved to the football stadium then, law enforcement and the fire department called and the building searched with similar results.
Another previous bomb threat was issued at the school in November 2012.
